Dreamer's Editorial..

Moslems around the world are definitely in a festive mood now.. 'Tis the month to be holy, jolly, and good.. People who are moslems shall undergo the ritual of fasting during daylight, in which they have to also control their emotion and behaviour..

If you live in countries where Islam is an influencing accent of social construction the I'd guess you would notice that by Ramadhan, practically the whole country goes into slow mode, since people are taking things a little easier to cope with the fasting they go thru..

Anyhoo, my photography will go on even during Ramadhan, no reason not to.. To save time and bandwidth on the blog you can see my albums online in facebook, flickr, and fotografer.net

Make sure you check them out!

I hope i'll be able to write articles related to the theme of Ramadhan..

Have a festive and blessful month!

Happy reading, everyone! :)

Tamiya 1/35 King Tiger, production turret

I'm pretty new to scale modelling, so obviously there's hundreds of new things for me to learn. Currently one of my projects is constructing the King TIger, used by German army in the 2nd world war. Plans are to make the Tiger in sort of "at rest" condition, with technicians from the Krupp factory examining an engine malfunction on the Maybach engine of the Tiger. I also used Tamiya photo-etched parts for the grill and gunsights, just to add little fashion to it..

above is a shot of the rear grille, after primed then added 2 layers of Tamiya Dark Yellow

above is the Maybach engine used to propell the movement of the King Tiger, scaled to 1/35 size, will be displayed under the opened rear hatch which you can see in picture 1. This part has actually gone thrugh painting, yet i have not the camera to take pics of it ^^ it's painted with primer coating, then with parts of metallic gray, titanium silver, and weathered with oil stains to emulate use..

above is pretty much the parts, after little details are glued on.. you can see the upper hull, lower hull, turret, and turret house..

It's currently not done yet, but i will update once things are progressing and i actually have a camera ^^v
